Astrea Liveaboard

Diving & Naturalist Cruises

Astrea is a monocoque diving cruise ship with engine and a length of 25 meters. It operates around the Galapagos Islands the whole year round.

What’s On Offer

Astrea goes back to Greek mythology. Astrea was the daughter of Zeus and Themis. She exists as the constellation Virgo, and is known as the goddess of innocence and purity. Astrea maintened her purity even after wars and under the protection of Zeus, Astrea watches over us from the starry sky. Galextur was inspired by this myth, and Silberstein believes in enforcing a “green initiative” and “pro-ocean life”.

Inside we have a lounge with air condition, TV, stereo, library, movies, table games, dinner room with air condition, a resting room with a bar and on the upper deck in the front is a sun deck.
